Congrats, and Divine in Domino

To Goodman’s Jewelers for nabbing the prestigious National Independent Jeweler Award. Goodman’s was one of twenty-seven winners (and the only one in the Midwest) to win the award, based on America’s Best Jewelers National Benchmarking Survey conducted by National Jewelers Magazine.
My interactions with Goodman’s have always been positive and their staff extremely helpful. Goodmans’ president John Hayes accepted the award in New York on January 19. Congrats!

I was reading the December/January issue of Domino the other week and spotted Divine Chocolate bars on their “Giving Back” page. This particular page is devoted to products that give a portion of their proceeds to charitable orgs. Divine Chocolate is sold at SERRV here in Madison, (formerly A Greater Gift), the fair-trade shop on Monroe Street. I have tried Divine Chocolate and can I just say it’s, well, divine! I purchased a few bars during the holiday season to give out as little gifts and of course purchased some bars for myself, too.
The mint dark chocolate bar is fab and tastes like Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. They also sell milk, dark, and fruit and nut chocolate bars, too. Or check out the bags of dark and milk chocolate hearts—perfect for Valentine’s Day and only $5 a bag!
